It's been a little weird getting back to some kind of normal after all of my traveling this spring.  On Monday I was totally desperate to finish something of my own. I made the mistake of going to the store and buying some butter mints to enjoy while I finished sewing the last two rows of Metro Rings.  I ate the whole bowl all by myself.  I really have a lack of self control in the sweets area of my life.  

So, I finished my Metro Rings - the color placement was totally planned on my part and I completely love how it turned out.  The only thing left to do is quilt it, but that is for another day...or month more like it.  I have the pattern available as well as the Quick Curve Ruler on my website where we have added a lot of new notions and tools. You should get started on yours.  I have always wanted to make a double wedding ring quilt, but I did not want to do all the work.  When Jenny's pattern came out, I knew I had to make it because it was a simpler version of a traditional double wedding ring quilt.  I am just so glad that I made something for me for a change. 

Yes, they watched a movie and I listed to music - best way to travel. ;-)
With the kids out of school we have a couple of mini vacations planned, and this week we took a trip to Las Vegas.  It's a quick drive under two hours from St George, and we stayed in this fabulous resort. 

It's beautiful.  I put away my phone and had fun with the kids swimming and barbequing and reading.  It was so amazing.

 We came home yesterday and it was back to quilting.  I am currently working on Thelma's Coastal Lily quilt and I love how it is turning out.  I will be sure to share my progress on Facebook and Instagram and the finished quilt here as soon as I am done.  

This morning sky greeted me today and I am so happy for summer skies.  I hope your summer is off to a great start! I know mine is.
